4.7 Crossings

Crossings are intended for cyclists to cross the road at right angles to the traffic flow. They are used where the combination of traffic speed and volume makes it unsafe for cyclists to mix and weave with traffic.

A range of different crossing types are possible depending on circumstances, and afford cyclists and pedestrians the option of stopping traffic in order to cross the main road.

In all cases, the most cycle-friendly choice is the one that provides for safe crossing and minimal delay to the cyclist.
